We’re only one week away from the premiere of the highly-anticipated Season 4 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. And luckily the steaming giant decided to bless us with an 8-minute preview of the first episode!
It all begins with the eerie morning routine of Dr. Brenner — from doing his timed-crosswords, trimming some greenery, shaving — until the date is revealed: September 8, 1979. Then we are transported back to Hawkins Lab, when El was just a child patient…
As you witness the lab conduct tests on children with powers, you learn more about El’s past and things take a very, ahem, bloody turn…
Well, take a look for yourself!
That’s definitely enough to keep us on the edge of our seats for next Friday’s big reveal!
As we watched, we couldn’t help recognizing sets and characters from NYC’s own new Stranger Things Experience. You really need to take experiencing the fourth season to a new level by attending in person…
Netflix also shared the exact episode count. Previously, it was revealed that the season would be divided into two volumes: with Volume 1 being released on May 27 and Volume 2 coming July 1 (five weeks after).
But now, the number of episodes in each has been shared as well:
- ST4 Vol. 1. Seven Episodes. May 27th
- ST4 Vol. 2. Two Episodes. July 1st
Also, the episodes will be much longer than usually, Variety reports. The majority of them will be 75 minutes each, while Episode 7 will be 98 minutes, Episode 8 will be 85 minutes, and the grand finale will basically be its own feature length movie at 2.5 hours long.
Note: NYC’s Stranger Things Experience has now officially ended.
